Can anyone tell me if the bios 1502 from the Asus R3E is compatible with the xeon X5xxx ? I can't find the aswer on asus website !

Yes, I ran a X5650 (Westmere) on mine, and currently have a W3690 (Gulftown) on it. Pretty sure any of the Xeons X5xxx will work. I ran the X5650 with the 1502 bios, so I know that works...well until the X5650 died. I am currently using Bios 1601 on it. Its a unrealased unreleased ASUS BIOS that was later modded by Zen I believe is the guy, so you won't find it at ASUS. It updates the SATA controller firmware, but doesn't change CPU compatibility as far as I know.thumb.gif

Anyone here have 8gb modules working with their x58?

Another question regarding triple channel, if I have 2 kits of 2x3 ddr3 1600 do they all need to be the same brand or just per channel?

I believe you can have two different brands in each channel, but for them to work well, you need to have similar specs, i.e. timings and voltage. I only had trouble once with this, and it was on a 990FX board, with the same brand and model. Go figure. Was Gskill RipjawX memory. Found that Gskill recommends matched pairs. I sold my two 2*4GB, and bought a 4*4GB set.

I saw a post here that one user has 48GB installed, so that would be 8GB * 6.

Currently have a Ripjaws and two sticks of HyperX (3x4 GB) and it works flawlessly.

Yea, but I don´t wanna risk buying 8gb modules and not have them work lol, its hard as hell to find triple channel modules already so I would have to buy a quad channel kit.

Yep, but that's mixed ram, not sure how that would work out, one channel is working as triple and the other as single? Or does it cancel out and just work as single ram?

Sorry, I misunderstood what you said, thought you had a kit of 3x ripjaws and 2 kingstons, You have 3 dimms, 4gb each and working in triple channel, lucky you =).

The G1.Assassin board supports 6*8GB just fine so I don't see why the Guerrilla wouldn't.

Yea, I ran into that info also, hopefully it does, guess I will be borrowing a module just to make sure, if it does I will buy a quad kit.

Yep..you would have to buy a quad channel set and a dual channel set. For a time, I used a 3 out of my fore mentioned quad set, but the last stick looked lonely in the drawer by itself. I finally found another triple set of Gskill Sniper. All three of my X58s are using Sniper DDR3-1600. I threw the quad set into my X79.wink.gif
